I think the changer of the work areas looks nice with numbers but the way we have it now let us move applications from one area to other just by dragging and dropping but if we have just a number on it we won't be able to do it anymore.
There should be two options, the way we have it now and your way

Thanks

 A few remarks

Good job again, what do you think about that:

- Especially your recent mockup looks rather grey, what about a brighter/lighter overall colour scheme? Especially the TreeView (list widget) will probably look too obstrusive, lots of apps are using big lists or trees. Maybe a variation with slightly alternating row background?

- Is different theming for OptionMenu and ComboBox really needed?

- Your Entry mockup has a slight background gradient. That would be inconsistent with bigger TextView theming (except you put a gradient there too, please no ;-).

- Your are using old-style Frames. Please note that groups of widgets don't have drawn borders around them in contemporary GNOME, just spacing.

Just nit picking, nevermind. Can't wait to start hacking your menu/toolbar style, it's very interesting. Might also try panel, but that's more work for sure.

 More nitpicking

It seems like the panel is stopping one pixel short of the screen edge in these mockups. Please make use of the screen corners and edges as they are easy targets for the mouse.

Fitts "law" postulates that the edges of the screen are infinitely wide or infitely tall in a certain direction and the corners are infinitely wide in two directions.

Also, I don't see the benefit of making the menubar a smaller target and moving it to the other end of the window. In every other interface I have ever seen the menu bar begins at left hand side of the window.

This follows from conventions in writing, it's extremely jarring to go from reading web content that begins at the left hand side of the window to menu content that begins somewhere in the middle and runs to the right hand side.

I have my Firefox menu bar configured similar to the one depicted, it feels very wrong to go to the right hand side of the window to click on menu items, but it does indeed look a little tidier with the extra toolbar disabled.

A less strange way to make wiser use of the space within the window might be to pack the toolbar on the other end of the menu bar (as you can already with firefox and thunderbird) rather than moving the menu bar arbitrarily and shrinking it's size.

As there aren't really any established grammatical rules regarding the reading of a row of pictures, you won't be breaking users heads quite as much as moving the menu bar to the other end.

I also feel the short address bar as depicted in firefox would offer poor usability in the real world as it's not long enough to display a typical URL, and leaves no space for the quick search bar.

I'm also left a little puzzled by the use of capital letters in the title and menu bars. It seems as though it's done for readability purposes, when it would be easier to increase the font size instead of shouting the menus and title in a microscopic font.

While these mockups are extremely pretty, and peppered with great ideas, it doesn't seem like there's been as much consideration given to usability as eye candy.

The more friendly your changes are to developers and users the more likely they are to be implemented.
